Hey everyone! I recently received a Soda Stream Fountain Jet to review and wanted to let you hear my thoughts! Here goes my two cents!
Okay, I’ll be honest and say that I always though ‘WHO would buy one of those!!!’ They seem a bit expensive when we can easily buy 2 liters! However, after trying one, I can see a use for them! In our house, we don’t drink soda except on special occasions and when we go out. So, basically we don’t buy soda for the house. Ever. We drink a lot of water, kool-aid, milk, juice and tea. However, after playing with trying out the Fountain Jet, I’ve changed my tune!
If you are one of those households like ours, where soda is a special occasion treat, the Fountain Jet is right up your alley! The initial cost is about a hundred bucks if you get it from their website, but you can go higher depending on which value you choose! I have decided that they are perfect for our movie and game nights! As well as BBQ’s and small gatherings.
As you could see in the picture I received a pretty nice selection and we’ve yet to choose a favorite! Root beer, however, is NOT our fave! It has a diet flavor to it! Of course, I don’t like homemade root beer in the least, so that may be the problem! We are looking forward to trying all of the flavors and I’ll let ya know when we try different ones! I’m looking forward to trying the orange soda one! Chief Zoo Keeper is wanting to try the Ginger Ale. Oh, how our tastes differ!
Anyway, the Fountain Jet is simple to use. The instructions were in every language it seemed like! They also have a picture diagram, if you are a visual learner like me! The most time consuming portion was chilling the water, but if you have a water dispenser in your fridge, or just keep cold water on hand, then you’ve got no wait at all!
The flavor of the root beer, wasn’t so great. I think part of the problem was that it was our first go round. We were having trouble getting the carbon exact! They suggest 3 ‘shots’ but that didn’t quite do it for us. We’re gonna keep experimenting with it! We’ll keep ya posted when we get it right! With over 50 flavors, I’m certain we will!
Overall, they have an awesome variety. If you prefer not to make the sodas, they have great additions for water too! I’ve changed my mind, I can see uses for it now! My Monkey likes it! I think it’s the concept of making your own soda, but regardless she enjoyed it! I really think you should try one. It’s great for entertaining, or for an every now and then treat! It sure beats running to the store just because all of the sudden you actually do want soda!
The only real complaint I had is that it is about a half inch too tall to fit underneath the upper cabinets! However, in the new house we’ll have none so I won’t be complaining much longer! Aside from that, it’s a keeper!
My favorite glass. Looks short and fat at this angle! LOL. Have you tried Sodastream??? Do you have a favorite flavor of their soda, or just in general? I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear any tips, tricks or thoughts you’ve got for it!!!
